I was delighted to see several students last evening at the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra as Renee Fleming made her first appearance with them.
Five of those students joined me at my home for dinner and conversation before the event. I had scored some tickets that I gave away in a drawing, and promised dinner to the four winners. So dine we did – on apple-cider chicken, cheesy corn, and broccoli, along with some hearty bread and a nice cornbread cake for dessert.
How I enjoy entertaining, and enjoy having students in my home in unexpected groups!
